The Flagships are bringing together excellent research teams across various disciplines, sharing a unifying goal and an ambitious research roadmap on how to achieve it.
In order to address their ambitious objectives Flagships require:
- Setting up large-scale partnerships that bring together the leading researchers from a large number of research organisations, including academia and industry;
- Commitment to a strong science investment over a long time period that cannot be carried out alone by the Commission or any single Member State.
